5 Gentoo is suffering from the 'secret conversations' urban myth.

17 The lack of visibility is the lack of organization and the pretty much
18 total freedom developers had, there was no real need to communicate on
19 certain points because it worked as it was. While this had its merits
20 and made Gentoo in what it is today i see more and more that this isn't
21 sufficient anymore (i come from a time when it was possible). This is
22 what the proposed top-level structure intends to tackle.
24 There is not much to say. I can tell you there's nothing special in area
25 51, but if you want to believe it won't change your mind.

29 PS. bad example, of course they're hiding UFOs and aliens and whatnot in
30 area 51.
31 PS II.
32 PS III. This mail goes as far as Gentoo Linux development, business
33 ventures etc. have a certain secrecy over them which i don't find
34 particular appropriate either. But to a certain degree that is not
35 directly related to the distro as a whole.
